    My parents can't afford a Laptop or anything over £100 really so I really don't know what I want. I just bought Borderlands (AWESOMEEE BTW!!) so I don't need a new game and I use my phone to listen to music after losing my Ipod 4g 3 months after I got it for Christmas [​IMG] So I don't know what I want... any suggestions?

    I went on Amazon to look around and I remembered about Madbid.com. I am always skeptical about this website because the prices look to good to be true.

    I there a catch?

    Will I get scammed?

    Is it a good idea to buy from there?

    Thanks everyone [​IMG]

    I spent my 19th birthday with six inches of serrated steel embedded in my chest, so consider anything better than that a point in your favour.

    New iPod sounds like a good idea though if you've lost your old one.

    Dont get your hopes up with madbid.com lol. its not scam, but IMO it is and I would rather stay away.

    As for what you want.. thats not for us to decide o.O. Go for something YOU want with the amount that is available to you.

    Scam or not, in life you don't find out the truth about something unless you try it.

    You have to buy credits there to be able to bid. The LAST person to bit by 0.000000001 seconds wins. Not exegerrating EVEN A BIT.
    So its pure waste of money and more like gambling.

    Ipod touch is £150+ mate. If you search on ebay you might get lucky to get a older gen one around 100 quid.

    I wouldn't trust madbid.com (or any website like that); just buy it normally.

    As for what you want: ask them for some money and save it for when there's something you want.

    Ask for 100 in cash, and save it until you see something you really want.

    If it weren't for the fact that the legal drinking age in the US is 21...
